Hi quick question, 

 

will low tension denim (high slub) denim stretch more in the waist vs a high tension (read as smooth) denim?

Online tailor translation question.

Anybody move from moderntailor to My Tailor on shirts? I was wondering if there was any significant difference in how they cut the shirt based on the measurements.

I haven't tried new cures in a while...not sure how they fit in comparison. Petit standards are new standards but slimmer in the waist and thigh...the rise may be a bit lower too.

Can you recommend me any wallet manufacturer in England that makes inexpensive wallets? I can only think of Sage Brown and Maxwell Scott.

I'm looking for a belt to match these, and have come across two I like so far. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could help me out with my choice

Hello everyone, I just joined this forum not very long ago. The information here is just overwhelming, love it but at the same time, lost! I am 26, 6'0" 180 lb, solid build. Never in my life wore suit/blazer or anything along those lines before. My work does not require it and I just wear a shirt with jeans/chino pretty much 99% of the time. However, I do think its time I kind of step it up a little bit style wise.

 

So here is my question, where do I start reading on casual blazers and suits? I don't even have the slightest clue what to type into the search bar... I am in no hurry and willing to take time reading.

 

Currently I own 0 suits/blazers. After going through some posts, I pretty much got the idea a navy summer/spring blazer is a good place to start. What do I need to know before I buy/order? Price is not the biggest issue but keeping it around 600 would be nice. 

 

Pretty much I am looking for one of those "  ***newbies*** READ FIRST before post and ask for advice on suit/blazer  " thread or anything similar.

 

Thanks in advance !

A forum policy question: Is it ok to start a thread to ask stuff like "I'm wearing this suit and these shoes, what shirt goes with it?" and, if so, which forum? Men's Clothing? Just thought I'd ask because I don't really see threads like that there (having gone through just a few pages). Thanks!

Suede chukkas are fine. Try the unlined pair by Alden.
post #14264 of 31171
There was a tradition, now largely forgotten like most clothing traditions, of not wearing suede in summer. It's one I like, but I'm in the minority and few have even heard of it. If it were me, I'd get a light tan suede, like the Alden tan, rather than brown.

For this suit (it is a med/light gray, but actually a white/black birdseye pattern, at least I think that is what it is called):

467

and a Lavender shirt.

Would you do:

1. A silver grenadine tie and white pocket square w/ light blue edge.

2. This tie (with or without PS):

438

3. Something completely different?
